Art Exhibit On Symington

On June 15, I went to a visual art show on Symington Avenue in downtown Toronto. I was really impressed with the depth and vision on display. Right there in the back garden I was pleasantly surprised to meet an artist from the old country, Zimbabwe, Chikonzero Chazunguza.

In his words, this display was inspired by cultural changes in Africa. Most communities have now lost their traditional ways and adopted consumer culture. Waiting in line for basic commodities has become the order of the day. This has created a whole culture of waiting. His piece tries to express how the anxiety of waiting dehumanizes people. It renders them into mere shells, and how this act repeats itself again and again. Food for thought. Here is some of his work.
